Overtraining – How It Can Affect Your Ability To Build Muscle

For building big muscle you have to train big. I mean REAL BIG. As they say “Lift heavy or go home!”. This is true, but (as always there is at least one “but”…  ) never ever overtrain your muscle. You don’t build your muscle at the gym. Nope. You build your muscle while you sleep, while you rest. Your body have to transform that holy protein in a freaky nice, lean muscle mass. If that is not what is happening to you – something is wrong and most likely you just overtrain your body.

You can lose your muscle mass!

Yes, sounds scary. You go to gym to build muscle mass, not to lose it. But this is what happens when you overtrain – your muscle do not recover.Take a rest at least one day between your workout sessions and get enough proteins (about 30-35 grams per each meal). Of course, vitamins, and other nutritional supplements are important too. But proteins are the building blocks of muscle.

Overtraining decreases the level of testosterone in your body!

This is painful too. Here is what happens – you overtrain your body and it has to recover. If it doesn’t get enough nutritional supplements, it have to use something else. And this is where you lose your muscle mass. And not only that. You can lose your testosterone – your main male hormone – level. Testosterone is a creation and building hormone. But if your body is focused on recovery, it totally forgets to keep up your testosterone level.

Damaged immune system

Muscle building hurts immune system by general. It weakens your body workout after workout and then recovers. This is why vitamins are so vital here – to strengthen your immune system. If you get a flu – you’re out of gym for at least 1 week and you lose a lot of water and strength by that time. But if you overtrain – you lose your immune system abilities by at least 200%, so your body is like a broken fortress – every one can get in.

So keep in mind – the line between great workout and “too hard” one is pretty thin. No one better than you can feel your body. Train hard, rest good and build a body you’ve always wanted!

Ultimate 40's Workout

Short, sharp shocks are the way to fire up your body in your middle years - which means you can forget long-winded weights workouts. Vary exercises, intensity and timings to keep your muscles guessing.

Ultimate 50's Workout

You may not be able to lift the heaviest weight, but that's okay. Instead, stretching and yoga should be part of your training, and body-weight moves can replace heavy workouts. Do three sets of 10 reps of the following exercises to protect your joints and maintain muscle mass and testosterone.
